There are many solutions that help companies improve operational performance. The OperationsRx approach is to understand a business by understanding the unique attributes that are specific to that business. Once the unique attributes are defined and the goals set then the team can determine what solution sets best fit the business. Often times the business thinks that it needs more help than it really does. Point specific solutions deliver a high rate of return for minimal investment.
OperationsRx has witnessed this often with wholesale changes to ERP systems. The ERP vendors are in the business of selling software. Therefore, a lot of promises are made to the operational improvements that will be realized as a result of the implementation of a very expensive ERP system. More often than not the business can achieve the same or even higher results with their existing systems.
